This was a little slower to the action than the earlier books. Overall it is ok, but it is easy to get lost because Joe's voice seems scattered and even more delusional than in the past..his "bad luck" also seems to always turn into good luck a little too often to be believable

Possibly an unpopular review, but my honest opinion.
DNF closed it at page ten, and those ten pages were cringeworthy. Based on a recommendation, I decided to read it.
I was expecting something complex and nuanced; something that would keep me turning the pages and, at the end, want me to carry on reading the remainder of the series, but this was extremely shallow and not worth 400 pages.
I'm not sure if it was just me or the actual novel but, when my Librarian asked me about it, she agreed with my comments and suggested I watch the Netflix series. Wow, I dind't even know that was a thing.… (més)

I read this book over three sittings - it was worth every moment invested.

Right at the beginning, you realize that there's something very wrong about the main character - it's only much later that you realize that there's something wrong with his obsession (his 'love interest') as well.

Suffice to say that there is not a single likeable character in this novel, and yet you can't help but plod on, thinking of what monstrous behavior you'll encounter next.

Obviously, this being the author's first novel, some loopholes were found, and there were some Deus ex machinas to make the plot plod along - but these minor transgressions are mere specks of dust in the cesspool of moral decay and corruption that is described by this masterpiece.

TL;DR - spellbinding, stupefying, so on and so forth. Worth every moment of binging it.

Joe becomes obsessed with Beck, a woman he meets at work. He wants to be with her no matter what it takes.

This was not what I was expecting at all! I knew that the main character would be a stalker and that was pretty much it. But wow, I had no idea how much I would dislike almost every character. I liked Ethan. That was it. But for some reason I still loved this book. Maybe because it was so gross and disturbing and creepy. I’m not sure, but I flew through this and can’t wait to watch the show.

Things I loved: the stream of consciousness, as twisted as it is, I was almost rooting for Joe not to get caught bc he actually doesn’t seem to realize that he’s in the wrong, I just wanted him to become a better person, the twists

Things I didn’t love: Beck

Overall this was a fun read. I am throughly disturbed.
